I have been looking at wheels and tires for the last month and have been keeping my eye out for used wheels on craigslist. My questions is do I need the TPMS sensors in the wheels? I have an 07 Commander 4.7L.

I believe all of the Commanders have the sensors but do I need them for any reason? I could live with a light on the dash that indicates no TPMS, i just want to be clear that it doesnt affect the computer in any way.

Oh if you are wondering I am looking at 18x8 Black wheels (looking at ATX right now) and upgrading to 255/65 toyo open country. And a 2" RC lift to ensure a proper fit. Thoughts?

Thanks for the help in advance, I have been reading this forum reigiously for months, thought i might try out for some advice.

You do not NEED the sensors, it is a pain to see the display on the dash all the time but I have a set with no sensors and other than the little light and an occassional chime there is no problem.

Awesome! thats what i was hoping to hear. I do not intend to buy wheels for offroading purposes, mostly for looks. but I am going with wider tires with the future hopes of the possiblity to take the Commander offroad. I am not as interested with rock crawling but would like to find some dirt/mud/hills that kind of offroading. oh and of course living in minnesota I'll get to try it in the snow this winter!

I did some searching but may need to start another thread, but is anyone here from Southern Minnesota, Southwest Wisconsin area? Just looking for some mild off roading.

I'm curious. Can the sensors be moved to the new wheels? I am probably going to get some new wheels next year and I like having the sensors, they have saved me a headache a couple of times.

Most likely, yes.

I just fitted steel off road rims to my Commander. Just swapped the sensors from the original rims to the new ones. No problems at all, there is a small rubber sealing ring that you need to be carefull not to break when removing the sensor. But it would be easy enough to replace with an o ring.
